Message from a baby lorikeet!

Hi Everyone, 


I'm a baby rainbow lorikeet (well technically, a 'fledgling'). You can tell I'm a young'un 'cos my beak is a dark browny color. When I grow up it'll be bright orange. 
You've probably seen me hanging out recently on the ground in the parks and in silly spots beside the road. DON'T PANIC! I'm usually OK, it's just time for me to learn how to fly. Listen carefully and you can probably hear my mum and dad calling to me from somewhere nearby, making sure I'm safe. 


If you think I don't look well, maybe I'm fluffed up and sleepy looking or my wings are lopsided (don't worry if I'm walking a bit funny, that's pretty normal) then please take me to the vet. And remember to tell the vet exactly where you found me so I can go home to my family when I'm better. 


BUT if I am bright and happy and make a lot of noise if you try to pick me up, even if I can't fly yet, then PLEASE don't take me away. I need to stay with my family so they can keep looking after me!

Thanks for caring,
